SUNDAY Delights with Seanchai Library

Two outstanding sessions today:

@ 1:30 pm, TEA TIME with the JUNGLE BOOK

We welcome Bryn Taleweaver to Seanchai Library for this delightful new series, based on selections from Kipling's classic, presented live in voice.

The tales in the Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book" are fables, using animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons. The verses of The Law of the Jungle, for example, lay down rules for the safety of individuals, families, and communities. Kipling put in them nearly everything he knew or "heard or dreamed about the Indian jungle.


The best-known of them are the three stories revolving around the adventures of Mowgli, an abandoned "man cub" who is raised by wolves in the Indian jungle. The most famous of the other four stories are probably "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", the story of a heroic mongoose, and "Toomai of the Elephants", the tale of a young elephant-handler. As with much of Kipling's work, each of the stories is followed by a piece of verse.



@ 3 pm, More STORIES AT THE PARK, at Holly Kai Park

Trolly Trollop, Kayden Oconnell, and Caledonia Skytower read 100-word drabbles and poems Holly Kai Park, including composition by Rosedrop Rust, presented live in voice. inspired by the current exhibition of art on display.
